Julián Castro Announces 2020 Presidential Bid

Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro is  running for president  in 2020.  He announced the presidency bid in his hometown of San Antonio on Saturday.  The Democratic lawmaker's campaign will likely focus on what CNN calls his "uniquely American immigrant story." Castro's identical twin brother, Rep.

Joaquin Castro, will be his campaign manager.  The newly announced  presidential candidate  said in a tweet that he won't "be accepting a dime of PAC money."  Castro has been considering running for a couple of years.

In December, he announced a presidential exploratory committee — the first big step toward launching a presidential campaign.   Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
